"Kylo uses lethal lightsaber attacks and Force powers to destroy enemies up close."
— In-game Description

Kylo Ren is a First Order Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. He is the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, the nephew of Luke Skywalker, and the grandson of Darth Vader.


Kylo Ren is a standout hero on the battlefield. He is maneuverable, almost able to keep pace with Darth Maul. One of his more notable traits is his relatively high DPS. His Frenzy ability makes him strike quickly and can one-hit most of the default trooper classes or deal high damage to enemy heroes. His Frenzy can also chain to three separate targets. He can stop enemies in their tracks with Freeze and/or pull them to him using Pull. He works extremely well when applying his crowd control abilities to open up enemies for his allies.

  • He is voiced in his mask by Matthew Wood, the same actor who voiced Grievous and the battle droids, while unmasked he is voiced by Roger Craig Smith.


Roger Roger Update

  • Health on Kill Star Card "Frenzied" has been replaced with "Power Of Darkness".
    • Old Star Card Name: Frenzied
      • Description: Whenever Kylo Ren defeats an enemy trooper, he regains twenty health. Whenever he defeats an enemy hero, he regains even more.
      • Stats: 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 Health regained upon defeating enemy hero
    • New Star Card Name: Power Of Darkness
      • Description: After using FRENZY, Kylo Ren's lightsaber damage is increased for 6 seconds.
      • Stats: 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 bonus damage
  • Fixed an issue where the "Berserking Tantrum" Star Card would occasionally provide the Hero with more stamina than stated on the card.

Capital Supremacy Update

  • Fixed an issue where a combination of Kylo Ren's Freeze and Pull ability would cause the blocking functionality of other Lightsaber Heroes to break.

The Chosen One Update

  • Increased Kylo base Lightsaber damage from 100 to 125.
  • Increased Kylo base Lightsaber extra damage when attacking from behind from 20 to 40.
  • Increased Kylo base Frenzy damage on Heroes from 80 to 125.
  • Increased Kylo base Frenzy damage on Troopers from 80 to 150.
  • Decreased Bloodlust extra damage on Frenzy from 10, 20, 30, 40 to 5, 10, 15, 20.
  • Fixed an issue where reactivation of the Frenzy ability would be blocked for a short time, if it was activated with no target. The ability successfully remains on the same target until they are defeated. It swaps to a new target upon original target defeat.
  • Fixed an issue where Kylo Ren's first hit with Frenzy would not stagger targets, making it look like the attack had missed.
  • Fixed an issue where the Frenzy ability could be activated mid-air,
  • Fixed a visual issue where the duration of Kylo Ren's Freeze ability would not be synchronized with the grayed-out screen effect from the affected user.

Darth Tyranus Update

  • Fixed several issues that affected the gameplay of Kylo Ren's "Frenzy" ability. It is now finding targets better and successfully doing multiple hits if only one target is available. If there are several targets, Kylo Ren will jump between them. A targeting system has now also been added for the ability.
  • As a result to above changes, the "Bloodlust" Star Card has now been changed so that Kylo Ren deals additional damage per strike, instead of increasing the amount of strikes. The possible total amount of damage that can be inflicted on a target is now 360 points.

General Grievous Update

  • Added scoring to Kylo Ren's Pull ability and fixed an issue where using the ability on Hero characters would not track progress for the milestone "MAKE THEM COME TO YOU".

Elite Corps Update

  • Fixed a visual issue that would occasionally occur on characters frozen by Kylo Ren's ability

Han Solo Season Update

  • Polished Kylo Ren's "Scarred" appearance

1.2 Patch
Kylo Ren had two of his Abilities on a 25 second timer, effectively making him less efficient and fun to play than other characters. As such, we reduced the cooldown for Pull and Freeze. We also felt he needed some damage absorption while being close to his targets, so we gave him some while Frenzy is active.

  • Pull - Reducing Pull recharge time from 25 to 20 seconds
  • Freeze - Reducing Freeze recharge time from 25 to 24 seconds
  • Frenzy - Kylo Ren now has 40% damage absorption while Frenzy is active

0.2 Patch

  • Fixed an issue where Kylo Ren's appearance reverts to the default version after he has been eliminated.
